Amanda Guthrie

Amanda Guthrie was accused of killing her 14-year-old daughter in 2021. She was charged with manslaughter. Amanda Guthrie shot her daughter Ayva Guthrie at their Arlington home. Ayva was rushed to a hospital where she later died from her injuries. According to the arrest report, Amanda Guthrie told police her daughter picked up a gun from off the top of a TV and started playing with it before she handed it over. Guthrie said the gun discharged as Ayva Guthrie gave her the weapon. There was not a magazine in the gun but there had been a round in the chamber. Her attorney says a forensic expert looked over the evidence and believes the bullet ricocheted off the ground before it hit Ayva Guthrie.
